The interesting article on warts (J. A. M. A.162:1222-1224 [Nov. 24] 1956) prompts me to report our limited, but surprising, results with use of iodochlorhydroxyquin (Vioform) cream, 3%. Four of our youngest children had numerous common warts for over two years. The youngest, a girl aged 3 1/2, had for some time a soft papillomatous wart in the popliteal space, treatment of which was postponed as so often happens in a physician's family. To control local inflammation several antibiotics were used on occasion, and at one time, since it was handy, iodochlorhydroxyquin cream, 3%. One week later it was noted that the lesion had disappeared.On the chance that the iodochlorhydroxyquin had effected the cure, it was applied by small dressing strips nightly, and, where possible, around the clock to the warts of all four children. One child with blond skin showed a minimal irritation
